I can’t remember the first time I started drawing… maybe since I am able to take a pencil in my hand ! I spent my childhood among books from Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake, Tony Ross, Ralph Steadman ….
After my baccalaureat, I studied arts in university in Strasbourg for 4 years, had my Master of Plastic Arts in 2001. So I went in Lyon to study illustration, animation and sculpture in the famous Emile Cohl School where I met fantastic and motivating teachers like Yves Got and Jean Claverie. I had my diploma in illustration in 2004. I live now in Paris doing illustration for french, english, american and korean publishers and I think it’s the best job ever ! I also teach illustration in Emile Cohl School.
I am full of energy, so next to illustration which is my very first hobby, I practice karate four times a week, write stories for children, play piano, go to museums, cinema….
One thing is sure, I love my life and I wouldn’t change it for nothing !
